Gotham - Character Posters/Villains Trailer/Cast Interviews

With filming for the first season due to start soon, some more stuff in relation to Gotham has been released, including eight new character posters, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, complete with description.

Det. James Gordon (Benjamin McKenzie): Idealistic new kid in town; a good cop saddled with a cynical partner who's determined to play by the rules in a city that doesn't have any.

Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor): The psychopathic umbrella-touting underling for crime boss Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith), who is full of secret ambitions.

Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith): A new character to this world — an underworld gangster, club owner and boss of Cobblepot.

Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz): Newly orphaned with enormous wealth, a 12-year-old seeking a new purpose for his life after witnessing his parent’s murder.

Selina Kyle / Catwoman (Camren Bicondova): A dangerous teen orphan and agile master thief adept at navigating the labyrinthian city.

Ivy Pepper / Poison Ivy (Clare Foley): Not too much known about the Gotham version of her character yet. Likes plants though.

Edward Nygma / The Riddler (Cory Michael Smith): A brilliant young forensic scientist working at Gotham PD with a penchant for speaking in, um, cryptic language.

Det. Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue): Gordon’s pragmatic, cynical partner.

The character descriptions don't tell us much that we don't already know but they're nicely shot posters and I do like The Good. The Evil. The Beginning tagline quite a lot actually. Also over the last week we've had a Villains trailer focusing on Oswald, Selina and Fish, news of Angel/Supernatural scribe Ben Edlund joining the writing staff, reports from the CTV upfronts and some new cast and crew interviews along with rumours of possibly seeing Mr Freeze at some point in the series.
